Lenten Sacrifices

For those who have lost track of time and haven’t seen Joe Biden’s forehead, today is Ash Wednesday–a day that marks the beginning of Lent. For many, this is a time of fasting and penance leading up to Easter. This year, bishops from the Church of England are calling for a cut in personal carbon use. Some of the ways they suggest doing so are to:

  • ditch electricity-sucking technology (like iPods),
  • eat more vegetables (that don’t require as much cooking as meat),
  • and don’t flush the toilet so often.

Overall, the gist of their suggestion is to go green for lent. I particularly like this because the result will benefit everyone and not just the individual making the sacrifice.
